Enid, Oklahoma is a community looking to the future. Our region's strong economy, abundant natural resources, and successful business were built on a legacy of strength, hard work, and determination. Now, we focus on the next generation with the same spirit of innovation, resourcefulness, and creativity that built this community.
Smart Start Northwest Oklahoma and its parent agency, CDSA, focus on building community. By organizing innovative partnerships that encourage investments of time and resources in the lives of young children, we are investing in our future workforce.
It's an exciting time to live in Enid! The Nonprofit Center and Center for Early Childhood Resources will open in downtown Enid in 2012 making the dream of providing centralized resources for Enid families a reality. The City of Enid has broken ground on a new Convention Center and gateway to downtown. Enid children are reaping the benefits of a $99 million school bond issue passed in 2010 that along with generous private donations totals a $100 milllion investment in our schools, our children, and our future.
Leaders in business, the medical community, government, and education have stepped up to join parents in addressing the critical link between early childhood success, school success, and long-term economic growth.
When we invest wisely in children and families, the next generation will pay back through a lifetime of productivity and responsible citizenship.
Join us! Our future starts today.
